Title: Gemini Augmented Target Docking Adapter during pre-flight checkout
Description:
The Gemini Augmented Target Docking Adapter (ATDA) during pre-flight
checkout  in the Kennedy Space Center's Cryogenic Building. The ATDA is
being used  because the Agena Target Vehicle failed to achieve orbit on May
17th, 1966,  causing the postponement of the Gemini 9 mission. The mission
(renamed Gemini  9-A) has been rescheduled for May 31st.
